The brash legal-clerk-turned-environmental-powerhouse has been rescheduled to speak at

regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

limited to two per person. Ticket distribution is first-come, first-served. No phone or email
reservations will be taken, nor will tickets be mailed. All tickets are general admission.

About Erin Brockovich:

While it’s been over 20 years since Julia Roberts starred in the Oscar-winning film, “Erin
Brockovich,” it turned this unknown legal researcher into a 20th-century icon by showcasing how
her dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in
history.

Today, Brockovich is president of Brockovich Research & Consulting, and she is currently
involved in numerous environmental projects worldwide. She has requests for her help in
groundwater contamination complaints in every state within the country, Australia, and other
international hot spots. A best-selling author, Brockovich’s latest release, “Superman’s Not
Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It,” drew wide media
attention before its publication.

The Featured Speakers Series is now in its 31st season. Find more information by visiting
